Spring Conversation Series Goal

We hope these events will create a “safe-space” for individuals and groups within the FSU community to discuss issues surrounding diversity, inclusion, and equity. More importantly, we want attendees and participants to walk away from the event with tangible ways to incorporate diversity and inclusion in their research projects and teaching methods.

Date and Location

Each of the three Conversations in the Conversation Series will take place from 11:30am-1:30pm, with lunch served from 12:15-12:45, in the Nancy H. Marcus Great Hall on the 4th floor of the Honors, Scholars and Fellows House (HSF) on the following three dates: Tuesday, 1/28, Friday, 2/28, and Thursday, 4/9. You may register to attend all, or a portion of, these events.


Each Conversation Event is organized in two parts. The first begins at 11:30 AM, with a presenter or presenters leading a conversation on the topic designated for that day. We will then have lunch from 12:15-12:45 PM. The second part is after lunch and will feature a second presenter or presenters leading another conversation on the topic designated for that day. Presentations will be designed in formats conducive to encouraging conversation and participation on issues related to diversity, inclusion and equity.
